A Flytyers quest of giving the flytyers and flyfishers of today and tomorow a chance not to forget about the Amazing heritage from the past.

This weekend I played with my favourite material, Quill. The quill i´m refering to is in this case the quills that you get from stripping the fibers of rooster neck feathers. I got the idea to the first one from my favourite fly, the Red quill originated by Catskill tyer Art Flick. A pattern from the 1930´s if I not remember wrong. Another favourite material is the feathers from the Partridge skin, really love those "spotty" feathers. And finally a real "oldie" when comes to material for flytying, Peacock herl. A material usen on fishcatchers for centuries. So a fly containg all of my favourite materials, this must be the fly that will make my dreams come true. Like many before...
